  • poll: Would you wear a different color gown for reception?

    Yes, I would but not such a statement color like red.

    Gold or blush color palette.

    No, I would not wear a different gown other than the ceremony one.

    Yes, I would wear a different dress but just a different style, but still white.

    Yes, I would wear a red reception gown.

    I’m thinking of getting a red dress as a second (or third, lol) dress too! We’re getting married in Malaysia so I’d love to have a red cheongsam to celebrate in! Yours is a lovely color.

    Absolutely I would! No colors were really off limits for me when I was wedding dress shopping. White is a recent thing, historically speaking, anyway. If you love something else, wear it. 🙂

    I definitely think that you should go for it. It’s a beautiful dress and in a great shade of red. I’m on of the Bees planning on wearing a red wedding dress to most of my wedding and a black gown to dance in so I may be a bit biased lol.

    I’m wearing one. I had mine made by Carabridal and it will be one of the dresses I will change into during my reception. Vietnamese weddings can be like fashion shows sometimes. My mom wanted me to wear about 5 dresses, lol. Red is a very lucky color in a lot of Asian cultures. :>

    That dress is so stunning!! I love the red.  I had a red cultural reception dress and it was a hit with all our guests!

    I didn’t vote because I don’t think what I would do matters. I say go for it!  

    I personally am not a fan of “reception dresses” but I get it. I fell in lovvvee with a dress that I kinda regret not getting. I didn’t get it b/c it was more casual. (Essentially it looked like a white bridesmaids dress). It would have been a great reception dress if that’s something I wanted to do. 

    That said, I always liked the idea of different color dresses. I say do it no matter what the color.

    I love this dress! I was always thinking how would it look like in red. Can’t wait to see which company you’re going for 🙂
